Halloween has basically snuck up on us this year. Gee, how could that happen? Let me see: I have FOUR sick kids, I think my mono has made me extra tired this past week, our house is still so unsettled. This bums me out because I love Halloween, and the anticipation of Halloween. Every year we bake Halloween cookies in the shape of pumpkins and little witches, and after trick or treating we watch the Charlie Brown "Great Pumpkin" movie while feasting on candy. Well, my cookie cutters are packed away, and I don't know where. Locating the video will be a lot like looking for a needle in a haystack (or, a needle in our garage that is filled with boxes, one of which contains my beloved cookie cutters.) You get the picture.
This morning I spilled my coffee all.over.the.floor. (Right after Anna spilled her milk all.over.the.floor.) That's when I knew what kind of a day it would be!
Will the Heldt kids be joining all the other little goblins and ghosts this evening for tricks and treats? Only time will tell! (And if you live in Denver and hear faint hacking and coughing when your doorbell rings, I'd advise wearing a mask to answer it. We are a germ factory over here!)
As for me, I think I'll be dressing up as a grouchy, disgruntled stay-at-home-mom. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!
